The second instalment of the local adaption of the popular US Real Housewives will not be without any changes.

Things are shaking up this coming season, with three new housewives added to the cast.

News of the new housewives was first teased on streaming platform Showmax's Instagram when they shared a picture of the cast.

Three new unknown of the ladies had their faces covered raising curiosity among followers.

“All hail, the queens of #RHODurban are back for Season 2. Catch all the style, fashion and drama, only on Showmax. 👑,” read the caption.

The already fabulous cast is joined by singer and songwriter Londie London, who is also a mother to her son, Uminathi Nkosi and wife to Hlubi Nkosi.

Londie London is known to live the soft life and is known for sharing moments from her luxurious life with her 1.2 million followers.

It’s been a hot minute since the Ambitiouz Entertainment signee dropped any new music, hopefully we get a few scenes of her in the studio along with her parting with the hottest celebrities in Mzansi.

The influencer is known to cause a stir on social media and just might just do the same on the reality show. We expect nothing but drama from Londie London.

Someone seems to have been bitten by the reality show bug as Thobile Khumalo from Uthando neSthembu joins the cast of #RHODurban.

MaKhumalo as she is popularly known, has become a fixture in Mzansi reality TV as a part of her family’s show which documents their polygamous family life.

The Vuma FM radio personality is KZN businessman Musa Mseleku’s third wife and it should be very entertaining to see how she is on-screen without worrying about her husband and sister wives.

Also joining the cast is blogger Jojo Robinson who is quite the Tik Tok star, with 35.4k followers on the popular platform. Mrs Jojo Robinson instantly grabs anyone’s attention with her artwork of tattoos on her body.

The artist will be bringing spice to the already spicy show and seems to already be getting along with her fellow co-stars judging by their comments on her Instagram posts.

Returning to the show is businesswoman and actress, Sorisha Naidoo as well as choreographer and businesswoman, Annie nee Ludick Mthembu. We are certain a big storyline regarding Mthembu will be how she did not invite any of her co-stars to her wedding in Cape Town last year. She said being on the show has been great for her business. “For me it’s mostly about brand building. I’ve seen the huge impact that Season 1 had on my brand, my salon and my other various businesses. The show has also opened quite a few doors for me so I just want to continue with that momentum,” she said.

Fan favourite, Nonkanyiso Conco, known as LaConco or LaC if you are Sorisha also returns, she clearly had fun last season, well, enough to return that is. There are questions if she is still engaged to former President Jacob Zuma. Commenting on why she decided to return, LaConco said: “There have been a lot of misconceptions about me, especially about the father of my child. People don’t know me, but they have so many opinions, very negative opinions. However, since my appearance on the show – and when people see me in public – they acknowledge how their notions about me were so wrong.”

Also returning is Nonku Williams. She had a terrible reunion, where she lost favour from fans. One wonders what her storyline will be this season as her baby daddy’s widow Ayanda Ncwane is no longer a part of the cast. “I’ve returned for numerous reasons and one of those reasons is because I really do love the show and I believe that I’m healing a lot of women by sharing my life experiences.”

Will she have a new wine range? Or will she lean into her villain status? Who knows?

Fan favourite, Mabusi, returns as a friend of the housewives, which is sure to make fans of the show excited. Ncwane and Kgomotso Ndungane are the two cast members who are not returning to the show.

But we can be sure that the Durban queens will have Mzansi glued to their screens.

Real Housewives of Durban returns on Showmax from January 28, 2022, with new episodes following every Friday.
